Wax counterpart (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

wane

'wax counterpart' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for wane that I've seen before include "Opposite of wax" , "Atrophy" , "Dwindle" , "Get smaller" , "Anew (anag.)" .)

I've seen this clue in the LA Times, the Jonesin Crosswords and the Jonesin'.
